Is it "on-going" or "ongoing"?
- Anonymous1 month ago
it's ongoing. it's an adjective indicating progress in something. On-going splits the adjective into two other parts of speech that are meaningless in that order.

It is 'ongoing'.

Ongoing is correct. It's an adjective indicating progress in something. On-going splits the adjective into two other parts of speech that are meaningless in that order.
yes it is
"on going" is something completely different

It is always one word. There has never been a hyphen needed for this.

I would use the compound rather than the hyphenated form, but either is acceptable. Robert explains the idea of word, and how words tend to evolve over time. That is, many compound words were once hyphenated.

Hyphenated words tend to change over time. They become one word.
"Ongoing". This has made it to the one word stage. This is according to all online dictionariesSource(s): Native American English speaker for 69 years
